It’s tentatively named AutoGlassInspector, but he calls it “Pointer and Bitwise Math Hell.” Anyhow, it manipulates JPG images and then […]

Underappreciated….

Dancing Elvii

Moss is in Nagoya, Japan… in Nagoya, Moss sees dancing Elvis impersonators. Moss got some photos and some video of these guys. It’s all so bizzare, but still very very cool.
